Dreamers Only

Had to throw in the towel last night.  Tried for hours to write this post but my computer kept freezing.  How aggravating!  Lillian, over at dVerse is hosting the prosery for Monday.  It had to include the following line:  If you are a dreamer, come in taken from Shel Silverstein’s poem, Invitation, as published in his wonderful book, Where the Sidewalk Ends.

Dreamers Only

She stepped back to better see the big picture. She could work with that. It would be spectacular!  She stepped over the threshold to see inside. Marvellous!  Ribbons hanging from the centre to each corner attached with flowers and herbs, boughs filling in the nooks and crannies with more for cushioning upon some logs acting as seats.  Stacks of books and various adored baubles added to the décor.  A stump for a table lit with oil lamps. It would be the perfect place for her story book club.

She heard the tentative footsteps just outside her door.

“If you are a dreamer, come in. Otherwise, you just keep on walking because there is no room for stuffy unimaginative types in this most sacred of places.”

Oh, Anne, it’s me, Diana!  Do let me in! I have the most wonderful story to share with you!


This little piece of fanfic was inspired by Anne with an E…

    • Dear Rochelle,

      You know, it took everything NOT to include that phrase 😉 I figured Marilla would not be eligible to join this club… no matter how fabulous she turned out to be!

      Shalom and lotsa imaginative love,

  1. Love the photo. Do you use Google Chrome? Apparently it was freezing up computers everywhere yesterday. Laurie’s school uses Google classroom it kept freezing up their computers all day long yesterday.

    • Thank you. It’s on one of the Boucherville Islands. I wanted to use another but… meh. And yes. I did use Chrome because Firefox had been giving me issues. Am now back on Mozilla hoping it won’t start up its nonsense again. Good to know it wasn’t necessarily my computer, then!

  2. Q

    Sucks about the frozen tundra you were up against last night, playing Shackleton to a mean draw before throwing in the towel. What is it about technology that does that to us? I guess it’s like, we know the engine has the answer and we’re the clueless travelers along its highway,

    As for the this dream sequence of yours, it’s like that treehouse where only the interesting thinkers are allowed to enter its realm. And I can imagine the password would be changing, depending on the candidate. No one password, so much as a clever anecdote or luscious quote that shows the individual to be worthy of entrance.

    I’ve got a 70’s rock song floating through my head now . . maybe more than one of ’em.

    • Thank you, kind sir. Tech issues are the bane of any creative’s existence when they decide to be faulty! I shall continue dreaming on, THAT I can promise you!


  3. What a lovely story Dale! The scene is vivid and enchanting. Sorry you had to go through the labyrinth of tech issues to get there, but you didn’t give up. And thank goodness for that. I’d love a little book club in that pretty little place.

    • Thank you, Shelley. I am so very glad you enjoyed my scene. Wouldn’t that type of place be magical?
      I’m rather glad I didn’t give up either! Especially after receiving such lovely comments.

  4. I can see the interior you described. It is a perfect setting. In my world dreaming is mandatory. I can’t imagine my life without a little bit of whimsy, a little bit of curiosity and a whole lot of dreaming.

  5. I’m sorry about your tech problems. There seems to be a lot of that going around.
    But I love the story! That is just what Anne would say–would exclaim–with Anne enthusiasm.
    Anne of Green Gables was my comfort book all through high school and college. I liked Anne with an E, too.

  6. LOVE the Anne with an E series and LOVE this special place you’ve created here. So glad you stuck with it so you could post. I want to be in this special place. The ribbons had me! 🙂


  7. How I loved ‘Anne with an E’ as a child! Thank you for reminding me, Dale, with your flight of book club fantasy. Will look for it on Netflix. Hope your computer gets over its crotchetiness!


  8. Dale, this is fantastic. It reminds me of a small shed tucked in a corner of the backyard at the house that I moved into when I was ten years old. We never knew what its purpose was but sat in it and imagined. I love what your imagination conjured up.
